Summertime Fun

We are trying to jam pack the summer before it comes to an end!
Can you believe only 4 measly weeks left of summer vacation?
It has been flying by!!

Here are some of the fun things we have been doing!!

(Click on pictures to enlarge)
We spent a day in St. George with our good friends the Lovell's. We picnicked at the splash park, read mags, talked, and let the kids play.

Then we did a little shopping.
It was a perfect day!

We headed South one day and swam in the Virgin River with our good friends the Church's.
We had a blast tubing, cliff jumping (Caleb even did it), visiting, and
soaking up the sun

Even Ana's mom jumped off! It was awesome!

The kids found tons of little frogs and kept them in buckets.
It was such a blast!!
Something we will definitely do again!!


We also took a family day and headed out to the Parowan Gap for some dirt bike riding! My kids love looking at the petraglyphs and playing around!

I got to ride a little too! The baby just sat contently in the air conditioned car!
Man that kid is happy!!

I took this with my dinky 4 mega pixel camera right as the sun was going down.

We are loving summer! Sad to see it going so quickly, but glad for the many more fun things we have planned! Before we know it we will have to be back on a schedule and preparing for school.

I remember you told me one time you guys had just gotten back from shopping or something and you brought everything into the house and then you relaized that you left Kennedy in the car. She just sat there all content. hahha.

I love your new header, Boogs! And I love those pictures of the Virgin River--that looks like so much fun. The layout you made with everyone jumping in the same spot is so cool. Boogs, America's Got Talent!
